This thread is dedicated to Tweets that refer to teams other than Manchester United that are outside of UEFA (e.g. MLS, Brasileirão, J-League, etc.). For other Tweets, please use one of the other Transfer Tweets threads.

Anyone not following the rules will be warned and eventually permabanned from the thread.

DON'T

  • Post a Tweet referring to any of the UEFA clubs.
  • Post a Tweet from a banned source (see below for the banned sources) unless they have held an interview with a player
    • Also, don't post a Tweet from an aggregator that refers to a Tier 4 source or below. The same exception as above applies.
  • Post a non-English Tweet without a basic translation (either from another Tweet or in the post itself). Suggested translators: Google Translate, DeepL, Reverso
  • Post anything from aggregator accounts (e.g. Transfer News Live) without the original source (as a second Tweet, link, embed, image, or a reference to a TV/radio show).
    • Exception: an aggregator's Tweet is retweeted by the source. The Tweet must then be accompanied by a message/screenshot indicating this. Otherwise, the Tweet will not be allowed.
  • Post anything from aggregator accounts who don't refer to the original source and tend to make stuff up for retweets/follows. Example, Proof
  • Post the following types of Tweets (post them in quotes/spoilers to avoid putting them into the feed)
    • Joke/Piss-take Tweets
    • Tweets that don't refer to a transfer story (e.g. a journalist posting their own opinions; example)
    • Tweets that refer to agent changes (without referring to the player's future), team ownership updates, or financial analyses (a transfer budget is enough info)
  • Post more than 3 Tweets per post. We highly encourage only 2 at most.
  • Post a comment referring to a rumour/report without a Tweet (e.g. "I've read multiple reports about United being linked to Haaland. If true...")
  • Post the full article verbatim from a Tweet. Provide a bullet-point summary instead.
  • Post anything that was tweeted more than three days ago. If it wasn't posted before then, nobody cares.
  • Post Tweets that are already in the thread. Check the feed before posting the Tweet.
  • Use the thread to moan (about the Tweets, United's targets, other teams' targets compared to United's, moaners, etc.).
  • Post off-topic comments or hold extended discussions over a single Tweet (that span multiple pages). Create a new thread instead.
Rules of thumb:
  • Article with no author = typically unreliable (exception: journalist websites like gianlucadimarzio.com)
  • If a Tweet gets deleted, then either replace it with another Tweet or delete the post.
  • Treat Fabrizio Romano as both a source and aggregator.
    • If Fabrizio Romano refers to another source, then provide a Tweet, link, etc. from that source.
Aggregators
Aggregators are Twitter accounts that collect news and reports from various media outlets and publish their summaries/key tidbits. They always refer to the source but often do not refer to the original article/news passage. They very rarely, if ever, post their own information; if they do, they prepend their Tweets with an "Exclusive:" or similar. Also, unfortunately, several aggregators (including some very popular ones) tend to alter the original info to either fit the content into a Tweet or sensationalise the original report. This is why it's imperative for everyone to provide the original source when posting anything from an aggregator. Aggregators also do not care about the quality of the source; they often publish Tweets containing info from unreliable sources.

Use the aggregators to either summarise the original source's info or translate the info from a non-English source. Basically, treat an aggregator like Wikipedia: use it to become more aware of what's going on in the football world, but recognise that it is not a reliable source of information.

What Kind of Tweets should I Post?
  • Player transfers, free signings, contract extensions, or releases
  • Managerial transfers, signings, contract extensions, or releases
  • Football executive appointments/releases (DoF, CEO/Chairperson, Head of Negotiations, etc.)
  • Transfer plans + any impacts to them
  • Transfer budgets + any impacts to them
The teams that you can post Tweets for: all non-UEFA leagues (top-flight leagues recommended)

The Caf now has its own pair of tier lists (one for United sources, and one for everything else). You can find them and more here. For your convenience, here is the list of banned sources (as of 21 June 2022):

It won't be fun going back and forth between threads. I don't know if this is a good idea.

It's a terrible one and pretty much ruins the transfer forum.
For discussions, it's not going to be easy, and I raised this up with Niall already. If you want to talk about this further, feel free to bring this up in the Tweets Debate thread.

may I suggest that Dani Longo (@86_longo) be removed from the banned list? I cant speak for his past, but he is currently quite reliable.
eta: Nicolò Schira (@NicoSchira) is also much more reliable than in the past.

Again, on their come up, I agree... Not so reliable. Today, much moreso.

He seemed talented a while ago, but never really established himself in their first team.

What have they done!

Checking 4 different threads and guaranteed to have the same tweets in multiple threads.

It's already happened with the Garnacho tweet 30 mins in...

That's what the feed is for. It shows you all of the threads in one place and also eliminates the duplicates both across and within the threads.

Source:
  • Sheffield United turn down two offers from Argentine club Tallares for Josh Windass.
  • Sheffield United don't want to sell him.
  • Windass respects his current club but prefers a move to Argentina.

Does the feed split into pages at a certain point? It seems to load all the tweets from each thread into a single page.

Official: New England Revolution striker Adam Buksa will join RC Lens when the summer transfer window opens for an "undisclosed fee".

You can view the Tweets per page by only checking one of the options and leaving the rest unchecked. From my experience, that's a little bit inconvenient, so I'll talk to Niall about potentially optimising that.

I don't like this move by the Crew.

Manotas may not have been bad for the Dynamo, but he's not good enough to be a DP for the Crew.

Yes, I would like to view all tweets but if it's trying to load that in one hit that isn't going to scale well.

Thanks!

The more details that come out, it seems like the players turned on the manager just a month into their inaugural season. They started out playing better than expected, then started playing like a new team.

Miguel Angel Ramirez did an excellent job at Independiente del Vallle in Ecuador. They are an special club in the region, with a very good academy linked to many social projects. Then MAR went to SC Internacional in Brazil and was a complete disaster. He seems to be more suited to work in the formation of young players than be ahead of a club that needs to compete in its league.

In that case, I don't get why he didn't work out at Charlotte. This is their first year in MLS, and no one was expecting much, especially since he wasn't getting much support from the leadership in building a better team. He got surprisingly good results at the start, too, but I maybe the Panthers ownership's more ambitious than I thought. With their Panthers history, though, I'm not sure if Charlotte will be a stable team for the next few years.

He is young and in Brazil he showed some problems to deal with a group of players that did not see him as a teacher. He was the coach of the U-20 at Independiente del Valle before becoming manager of the professional squad. He formed many of the players. His first experience on an actual realistic environment was at Internacional. He failed. Sadly. Seems to be a decent guy.

I get you now. That makes sense. That Charlotte team has a bunch of experienced heads.

UAE showed up with a truckload of money. I lived in Abu Dhabi for a year, there are worse places to live.

He was highly rated, but then his last couple of years with Monaco didn't work out so well, and all of that hype basically died down.

After how worried TFC fans were back when Criscito decided to stay at Genoa, this track has gotten hot again.
